Getting Involved in the ESTA Technical Standards Program
We encourage active participation in the ESTA Technical Standards Program. There are several ways to become involved:
Join a Working Group
The actual work of creating standards, recommended practices and informational pieces is carried out in the Working Groups. Membership in a working group is available to any party who has knowledge of and a legitimate interest in the topics covered by that group.
Request a Standard be Developed (PDF)
You can also become involved by requesting the TSP develop a standard or recommended practice in an area of concern to you. Requests for action should be in writing and be directed to Mike Garl, TSC Chairman, care of the ESTA office in New York. Please use this outline form to help organize and submit your request. The TSC will respond to your request in writing.
Become a Sponsor of the Technical Standards Program
The ESTA Technical Standards Program is supported largely through sponsorships via our Investors in Innovation Program. We hope you will consider joining these companies and individuals who have made the Technical Standards Program possible with their generous sponsorships.
